APOCALYPSE SNOW

Okay, I know the title is a bad pun (all right, it's not a pun at all because "now" and "snow" aren't even similar in pronunciation) but the fact is, in Washington an inch of snow is considered the First Horseman of the Apocalypse (with four or more inches making up the entire apocalyptic posse). Whenever as little as a half inch of snow is forecast, you'd think nuclear armageddon was upon us because the entire region goes crazy. People stampede the grocery stores to buy bread, milk, toilet paper, diapers, you name it, apparently because they expect to be trapped in their houses for at least a month. Folks, this is NOT New Orleans and the dikes ARE NOT BREACHING. Last night we got maybe an inch of snow and a bit of freezing rain but as of 7:30 am the sun was shining, the snow and ice were melting, and all the roads were clear. But of course all the schools were closed, the city and federal governments opened two hours late (with an unscheduled leave policy, meaning you can just stay home if you want although it does come out of your annual leave), and our visiting friend David's 8 am flight to Portland out of National Airport was cancelled. I guess stories like this one make them antsy. Heck, I'm surprised they didn't shut down the entire airport for the entire day.

Well (and you knew it was coming), I grew up in Buffalo, NY and we were HAPPY to get an inch of snow because it meant we didn't have to go out and shovel two FEET of snow from the driveway, and then have to go to school anyway. So when it snows in Washington I just sit back and enjoy the show.
